Abstract

In this paper we present a novel twist on the classic children's game, Memory. Here we combine the use of a weighted, centroidal Voronoi diagram and a multitouch tabletop surface to create a board game in which tiles (represented with Voronoi regions) dynamically morph as the game play evolves. This provides a challenge in which players must not only remember the locations of the various tiles, but also track their movements over time. Ages: 3 - 99 Players: 1 or more
